Step 1: Materials Needed

You will need:

Grill cleaning brush
Chimney grill starter

Worcestershire sauce
Bull's - Eye BBQ Sauce
Liquid Smoke
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Morton Iodized Salt
Mr. Yoshidas Marinade & Cooking Sauce
Charcoal lighter fluid
Kingsford Charcoal
Aluminum foil

Step 2: Marinate

Marinate the ribs with some liquid smoke, yoshidas, salt , pepper, garlic powder, worchesteshire sauce, and onion powder.

Step 3: Prep Work

You have seasoned the meat and now it is time to start the fire. Make sure you clean the grill first with a brush.  
To start the fire:
Fill the Chimney grill starter with Kingsford charcoal and stuff some newspaper in the bottom of it. When the coals turn white, take off the cooking grid and dump the coals out of the chimney grill starter and into the bottom of the BBQ grill. Put the cooking grid back on, and now you are ready to cook the ribs.

Step 4: Barbecuing

Place the ribs onto the grill. Make sure they have enough room. Periodically check on the ribs to see if they are done. After a while, pour the juice from the pan onto the ribs.

Step 5: Sauce Time

Open the lid to the grill. Take the Bulls Eye sauce and a spoon to spread the sauce over the ribs. The sauce soaks into the meat.
The picture is kind of foggy looking because of all the smoke. The meat is now done once you put the sauce on. You can take the ribs off of the grill or leave them on until you choose to remove them.

Step 6: Finish

When your done, take a pan and cover it with aluminum foil. Put the ribs into the pan and cover the pan with more foil until your ready to serve. This instructable was every carnivores dream BBQ and Guy from the Food Network would be proud. Happy grilling!

    Congradulations :) Ribs have always been one of our favorite dishes at our BBQ's. An old family secret is boil the ribs first which takes out some fat and tenderizes the meat. Then it is easier to grill and get the sauce just right.

    I used to boil my ribs but after I started smoking the ribs, I never boiled them again. A friend of mine is a Master Chef and he told me one time the only food that should be boiled is pasta. He said it was a crime to boil any kind of meat. After tasting the difference... I have to agree.

    Try this.
    1) Start the oven, T=70 C for medium, 65 C for medium rare
    2) Brown the meat on all sides in a frying pan Season the meat.
    3) Put it into an oven bag, remove all air and seal the bag with a knot or a tietape
    4) Put the bagged meat in a roasting pan and then put the pan in the oven.
    5) Boil some water(about a liter) and add to the pan
    6) Cook for 3-4 hours

    Tip: fry some onions, garlic, shallots, celery in butter until soft. Add a ½ cup red wine and thyme, bay leaves, and pepper.Cook for 5 minutes. Add to the oven bag before sealing. After the meat is done make a sauce with what is left in the bag after removing the meat by straining the juices, reduce to the half, add cream and reduce a bit

    This works for beef, lamb, pork(T=75 C), venison(T=75 C), chicken(T=75 C)

    I agree... sounds delicious!

    Wish it would stop raining/sleeting/hailing and snowing in the great Northwest.

    I've suddenly got the urge to grill outdoors!
